When I try positioning the cursor (using both mouse and touchpad) anywhere in the first few words of any line, it jumps up to the header. I cannot select the first words of a line with the mouse or touchpad. I can only do it by moving the cursor with the arrow keys.
I’m using Ubuntu 18.04 and LibreOffice Writer Version: 188.8.131.52
I have uploaded a sample doc I am having trouble with. Cursor jumping problem.odt
The original document was .doc. I tried converting it to .odt to see if that made a difference. It didn’t. Someone else created the original. I am an editor. I am able to edit everything fine, but I can’t position the cursor as I would like. I have this problem with many of the docs I am sent to edit.
The problem doesn’t occur if I open the original .doc file in Word on a Mac.
If, using Ubuntu and LibreOffice, I delete the comment I have put in the margin (see file I uploaded), the problem disappears and I can position the cursor normally.
